Ce qui vous attend

Take an eye-opening look into American history and visit 2 out of 3 prominent plantation homes along the Mississippi riverfront. Take a drive along the Great River Road, which winds along the Mississippi River, where you will visit the Laura, and Whitney plantations.

At Laura Plantation, enter the fascinating world of Creoles who lived at this sugar plantation, apart from the American mainstream, for over 200 years. The tour is designed based on information taken from 4 generations of family documents that reveal the real-life accounts of the slaves, owners, women, and children who lived there.

Opened to the public for the first time in 262 years, the Whitney plantation is the only plantation museum in Louisiana with a focus on slavery. Through museum exhibits, memorial artwork, restored buildings and hundreds of first-person slave narratives, Whitney serves as a site of memory and consciousness that pays homage to all slaves who lived and died here, as well as those who lived elsewhere in the United States.
